EW Covers X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, Reveals New Plot Details – SPOILERS (Newsarama)

EW reveals numerous details about the film, including which mutants Apocalypse recruits as his four horsemen. According to the mag, Apocalypse will recruit a young Storm from the streets of Cairo, Angel from Berlin, and Psylocke, who is working “behind the iron curtain” for Caliban. Finally, Apocalypse’s fourth horseman is Magneto, whom actor Michael Fassbender says has “fallen in love and he’s basically left his metal ways behind. Apocalypse finds Erik at a low ebb and recruits him.”

So, is anyone else concerned about the fact that two out of three of this film’s prominent WoC are either acting in the capacity of villains or being subjected to some kind of agency-negating mind control that they will have to be freed from? And that they will undoubtedly be therefore swayed or freed by almost exclusively white hero characters?

I’m concerned about this.
